İzmir, without an argument, is one of the most amazing cities in Turkey. It is a city of history, since it hosted many civilizations, such as then Ionian, the Roman Empire and many more! The city's name is coming from an Amazon woman called Symrna, however, a recent archeological digging shows us that the name of İzmir might also come from a queen who ruled in here. Due to its beautiful location, this city was a great cultural and trade hub for ages. İzmir is one of those cities which ends up offering a lot of fun times and activities; so if you and your family/friends have spare time, why don't you enjoy the spectacular aquaparks in Kuşadası? Kuşadası officially belongs to Aydın, but it is very close to Efes, which brings it close to İzmir. It is a coastal resort town, which hosts half a million of tourists every year.
